In today’s world of increased economic connectedness, companies are constantly looking to expand beyond their home countries or seeking additional capabilities in newer geographies. However, each market is unique in its cultural, economic, and regulatory factors. Success in new markets is as much about investing money as it is about understanding the market, developing the right approach to it, and finding the right execution partners.
We are passionate about building new businesses and help ambitious companies expand into new markets in Europe and India. We work with entrepreneurs, family businesses, and corporates to develop and execute both organic and inorganic expansion plans.
We support companies enter and operate in India and Europe, with a particular emphasis on France, Germany, Switzerland, and the UK.
What we do
As specialists for M&A and market entry, we work to identify the best approach and work with our clients to implement it. This can cover the complete market entry process - from the initial opportunity assessment (market analysis) to local legal and operational support, through to transaction execution or post setup marketing support.
- Strategic business development: We work closely with clients to jointly develop business plans for new markets. Where clients wish to grow their business organically, we help with strategic business development, client introductions, local resourcing, and setup of local operations.
- M&A and minority investments: We provide buy-side support to clients seeking to make majority acquisitions or minority strategic investments in Europe or India. This includes mapping and identifying targets, supporting negotiations and structuring, managing relationships and addressing cultural differences to support transaction execution.
- Joint ventures and partnering: Commercial agreements and joint ventures are often a lower risk way to enter a new market. We help our clients find the right partner, structure the right deal, avoid operational pitfalls and manage partner relationships effectively.
- Growth financing: Where clients require financing for growth in a new market, we work with institutional and strategic investors to secure equity or debt financing.
